With the season of giving just around the corner, Sports Radio 610 will be partnering up with Cadence Bank, the Langham Creek YMCA, and the Miracle League this year for their 2nd annual Yuletide Drive in order to help raise money for the development of the Miracle League Sports Complex in Houston. The multi-million dollar complex is specifically designed for special needs children to participate in team sports including baseball, soccer, football, kickball and field day games. The on-air auction charity drive will occur from December 2nd – 6th and will take place live during the J&R Show from 2pm to 6pm.
At present, the Miracle League is playing on one temporary turf field. Due to rain, many games are cancelled or re-scheduled to give the field time to dry out as it is too wet to allow for wheelchairs and walkers to maneuver. The porous design of the new proposed field prevents puddles from forming on the surface and conforms to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and ASTM F-1951-99 Determination of Playground Surface Accessibility. In addition to upgrading the baseball fields, a playground with modified equipment and a covered pavilion will also be built.
From December 2nd through December 6th, the J&R Show will be out broadcasting live from various locations to collect donations for the Miracle League. Listeners will also be able to contribute though an on-air auction by bidding on various auction items that will be announced live every hour throughout the show from 2pm to 6pm. In addition, Cadence Bank will be accepting donations at their 13 different locations throughout Houston.
Last year, the J&R Show raised over $75,000 for the Fort Bend’s Women Shelter, earning them the National Philanthropy Day Award in Outstanding Media. This year, Sports Radio 610 hopes to surpass that success with their partnership with Cadence Band and the Miracle League. “In my 18 years of being in radio, last year’s Yuletide Drive was my greatest accomplishment.” said Rich Lord, co-host of the J&R Show.
